Re: Shadowy/Ghosting Display on my monitor

Check the VGA connector and the cable. It might be loose.

Re: Shadowy/Ghosting Display on my monitor

Hi guys before you do anything drastic, unplug the monitor from the back and wait a couple of minutes and then replug it. I know it sounds like a simple solution, that's what I did and it worked. It kinda looks like it needs to be demagnetized....

How can i fix the shadows on my acer monitor?

The fix is too easy to believe, but it works. I thas happened top me. I was told to separate the wires that come from the back of the monitor. If they are too close together or touching, you get "shadow" or "ghosting". Hope that helps. It fixed mine.

Shadows around the objects

One common cause of ghosting is an inferior monitor cable. Remove any extension cables and check again. The monitor may be getting interference from another device nearby, such as a printer, for example. Try turning off/ disconnecting other devices and see if the ghosting disappears. If so, you could buy a better shielded cable, or rearrange your components to prevent the interference.
That would be a simple fix if it works....

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Shadowing of text



Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use.
Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use.
say 15 minutes.
Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

Problem with shadows showing on monitor

LCD Monitor Shadow Effect
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this is very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
Solution: Keep the two cables - (power cable and monitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.
